Maison de Ville, a mere stone’s throw from the fabled Bourbon Street, offers an ideal starting point to any of the French Quarter’s many popular entertainment destinations. Barely 3 blocks away from the front door flows the mighty Mississippi River where the old-fashioned steamboat offers 2-hour Dinner & Jazz Cruises. Equally close is Jackson Square with the beautiful Saint Louis Cathedral, dating back to 1850.
After a visit to the famous Cafe Du Monde for beignets, you can stroll through the outdoor French Market to check out the eclectic collectibles, art, accessories and even seasonal foods. Equally distant are the fine shops at Canal Place, which also features the Canal Place Movie Theatre, a newly renovated luxury movie theatre with in-seat service of food and cocktails.
Our city hosts many different food and music festivals throughout the year and even more interesting and entertaining guided tours; we have French Quarter walking tours, city tours which will take you to the various neighborhoods, including the beautiful cemeteries, or you can enjoy the sights of the city on a romantic horse drawn carriage ride or on a more modern Segway tour.
Take a day trip to the nearby Louisiana Swamp where you can observe alligators in their native habitat, or to the historic plantations outside the city that are set in Louisiana’s gorgeous, natural scenery.
In short – there really is no time to be bored in New Orleans!
